VicSTEM launched

Today the Education Minister, James Merlino, launched VicSTEM which includes the STEM in the Education State Plan. Some interesting news in this include:

  • The Victorian Maths Challenge – note that many of the challenges have a STEM theme, rather than being purely mathematical
  • A statewide license for Wolfram Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha Pro, System Modeler, Mathematica Online and Wolfram Programming Lab – note that this includes students on BYOD
